Exodus 14:13 But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again.
As I mentioned yesterday, Jeff woke up this morning quite happy to see little flakes of snow falling from the sky (even though they landed as water on the ground). Lucia was also excited by the snow falling, she came running to me this morning to tell me that she caught a snowflake in her mouth. After breakfast Jeff headed out to the hospital for the morning while the kids and I stayed home for some school work. As for my morning, the kids did great and our plan was to do school work this morning and then head to one of the many museums for a social studies and history lesson this afternoon. Unfortunately that didn’t work out, but the kids seemed content to play with their new friends from downstairs. For a while I heard them outside screaming and playing, and then they came in to warm up a bit playing some of the games we brought with us.
I have been busy with preparing my resume and an application for a job that I am very nervous about applying. I feel that I would be very good at this position, but I am not sure I have the necessary experience given that I have not worked in the field of social work for over 11 years. This position would be a dream job for me, but I am not feeling very confident. But I realized something important today, I was so excited and nervous as I went to hit “Submit”. I mean my stomach was actually spinning, just as it does before you have to give a presentation or speak in public.
This passage is a perfect reminder that I do not need to fear anything, but rather to stand firm in what God’s plans are for me. This process of preparing my application has shown me where I want to be with my career, and even if I don’t get this job, I now have some direction and something to work towards and that is a huge gift. God has plans for me and my family, this job may or may not be a part of it, but either way, His plan will lead me where I am supposed to be and I am happy to follow His path.
